I was just going through some files and find this text that I don’t recall where I found it but it is rather chilling, especially when you know lots of people like I do who were brutalized in their youth due to this mentality.
CHRISTIAN POSTER GIVEN TO INDIANS
LET JESUS SAVE YOU.
COME OUT OF YOUR BLANKET, CUT YOUR HAIR, AND DRESS LIKE A WHITE MAN.
HAVE A CHRISTIAN FAMILY WITH ONE WIFE FOR LIFE ONLY.
LIVE IN A HOUSE LIKE YOUR WHITE BROTHER. WORK HARD AND WASH OFTEN.
LEARN THE VALUE OF A HARD-EARNED DOLLAR. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON GIVEAWAYS. BE PUNCTUAL.
BELIEVE THAT PROPERTY AND WEALTH ARE SIGNS OF DIVINE APPROVAL.
KEEP AWAY FROM SALOONS AND STRONG SPIRITS.
SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF YOUR WHITE BROTHER. SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO SCHOOL TO DO LIKEWISE.
GO TO CHURCH OFTEN AND REGULARLY.
DO NOT GO TO INDIAN DANCES AND MEDICINE MEN.
